That's not the role of a 6th man, which Toney is best suited as.

Whether you like the term or not, most 6th men are "spark plugs" off the bench.

And they stabilize the second unit to provide relief to the starting unit, normally providing scoring, and if done right the seamlessly fit in.

Toney could fit that bill.

Kinda of why I really wanted Jamal Crawford back, and if it took Toney to do it, by bye TD.
